18th & Vine Design Guidelines

18th and Vine historically served as the epicenter of African American life within Kansas
City. Around this intersection, commercial and entertainment activity blended with
residential life, creating a completely self-sufficient community within the greater Kansas
City area. It was in this area that Kansas City jazz was born with its own distinctive style
that draws upon New Orleans jazz and ragtime. Due to this unique association with the
African American experience in Kansas City and the creation of Kansas City Jazz, the
18th and Vine District is nationally, regionally, and locally significant.

Westport Historic Resources Survey – Final Report

Rosin Preservation completed a historic resources survey of 406 resources in the Westport area of Kansas City, Missouri, roughly bounded by 39th Street, Main Street, 43rd Street, and Southwest Trafficway (Summit Street). The goal was two-fold: to identify resources (buildings, sites, structures, and objects) that may be eligible for listing in the National and/or Kansas City Registers of Historic Places and to identify resources that are not register-eligible.
